Miranda Lambert made the best of a sticky situation.

On Thursday, the 33-year-old country crooner was headed to Las Vegas, Nevada, for the Academy of Country Music Awards but didn't quite make it. "Y'all....@ACMawards or bust! Storms diverted our plane to Laughlin Nevada," she shared on Instagram, along with a photo of herself seemingly tailgating. "So... Rent a car set up the bar!! Vegas here we come. Thanks Curt Jenkins For drivin! Best TM ever! :đŸ“·Marion Kraft #highwayvagabonds #wheelsandwhiskey #fenderbender #vanjam #90'scountry #bartenderinanotherlife."
